Heeldo. Turn On or Buzz Off?

5

by thepleasurechest

It’s been almost a year since our last installment of Turn On or Buzz Off– the feature where we ask readers to weigh in on the weirdest products in the adult toy industry. As some dedicated fans might remember, we’ve polled you on everything from zombie dildos and Simpsons porn, to an MMA bed and a vibrating bra! Some of the contenders in Turn On or Buzz Off, like the adorable Bzzzbuddies and the stealthy L’Intimate, have even found their way onto our stores’ shelves. We’d almost forgotten about this feature, until a new product landed on our desk this week.

Meet the Heeldo, a strap-on harness for your foot! Oh sure, you’ve seen the thigh harness, the hand harness and the chin strap. But what’s the appeal of footballin’?

Let the marketing folks at Heeldo explain:

Heeldo™ is the FIRST strap-on dildo harness for your foot allowing for vaginal, clitoral or anal stimulation.  It slides on your foot like a sock and a dildo protrudes out of the back of the harness, where your heel is. You can then sit, squat, and bounce on your favorite harness-friendly dildo.

  • Compatible with most harness-friendly dildos on the market
  • Made of neoprene and is hand washable
  • Guaranteed pleasurable blowjob for both men and women
  • Ideal for straight and gay couple play
  • Great for female solo masturbation or male self-pegging
  • Prostate stimulation for intense male orgasms!

Sounds toe-tally awesome, right? We can see how this harness would be a shoe-in with foot fetishists. But we’re not sure we’ve got the coordination required to give a blowjob while giving ourselves a toe job. Either way, we imagine, the Heeldo would provide one helluva workout.

What about you? Would you get your kicks from the Heeldo? Or is foot-oriented sex your Achilles’ heel? Take our poll!

8 Unusual Products Sold By Our Chinese Namesake

2

by thepleasurechest

We just stumbled upon a Chinese website calling itself Pleasure Chest and we couldn’t resist poking around to see what’s on offer. Now we can share our findings with you. Or, to echo the immortal words of the company’s about page, “Join us, Let’s achieve the mutual benefits from this moment.” Here are our favorite curiosities sold by our Chinese namesake.

1. "Eyelash" cockring

This cockring is supposedly made from “eyelash.” Since it does not vibrate, they’ve helpfully listed “by hand” next to the type of batteries it takes. We’re a bit mystified as to why anyone would want a cockring made of eyelashes, and we’re afraid to ask how the materials have been sourced. Also, we are too horrified to post the photo of the “cow eyelash” cockring.

2. "Teaser" hand-shaped vibrator

This hand-shaped vibrator is called Teaser. The website helpfully informs us that “The device is mainly used to rub at female pudendum (or other sensitive parts).” But in a flourish worthy of a David Cronenberg film, the copywriter suggests that the toy is meant as a tongue/hand hybrid.

“It imitates human tongue,sexy,soft and flexible,which can bring more vibration than real tongue.It is made of organosilicon resin and soft enough to be bent easily.Taste buds are fully covered on the hand,and which will add more rubbing orgasm.”

It’s your basic vibrating taste bud-covered hand for rubbing the pudendum. Where do we sign up?

3. "Perfect" Masturbation Cup

Does this “Perfect” Masturbation cup look familiar? Well, it ought to, because it’s a near perfect knockoff of the famous Tenga masturbation sleeve. The design is nearly identical, and it’s not the only Tenga-ish product our Chinese competitor carries. They’ve also got some sleeves that remind us of the Fleshlight product line, including this “anus flashlight.” 

4. "Dildo Vibrator" sex machine

This puzzling sex machine comes with an AC power cord and a wireless remote control. We’re not exactly sure how one is supposed to mount this contraption, but it looks perilous. The company also sells another sex machine which looks handy for carrying your old 45 record collection around in. That is, if you don’t mind a side-mounted dildo on the box.

5. Sexy Men's Wear

Pleasure Chest China also sells lingerie. Their splash page touts, “If you wanna become a sexy woman, please come in now!” But it’s the men’s lingerie that truly impresses. This strappy red number is great for showing off your basket, but for sheer WTF design, we love the crisscrossing pattern on the white panty pictured above.

6. Hentai Masturbation Sleeve

If you love anime and manga, especially the XXX genre known as “hentai,” then you’re probably already lusting after this masturbation sleeve. It’s a few degrees removed in perversity from the downright cute Hello Kitty vibrator that we sell.

7. Beaded Cockring

Yup, as far as we can tell, those are just Mardi Gras beads sold as a cockring.

8. Chef Vibrator

There are many wonderful vibrators on this site. The splash page shows a number of vegetable-shaped vibrators, from eggplant to corn, that we would love to try out. It’s the anthropomorphic vibes, however, that are the most entertaining. This mustachioed chef is our favorite, but the cowboy and the nurse are also adorable.

How can you order from the Chinese Pleasure Chest? Their minimalist FAQ is a tad frustrating. A sampling:

Q: What’s the MOQ?

A: we always don’t have moq,

Q: Can you accept drop ship?

A: NO,we can .

Intriguing!

We suppose we could launch a full investigation into this odd company with its familiar name and truly strange toys. But that would ruin the mystery.  Can we explain this website and its odd wares? No, we can!

Ambiguously Gay Muppets, Sexy Superheroes & Cuddling with John Stamos

2

by thepleasurechest

During all the fuss over Anal August, we’ve been neglecting our weekly link roundup. Here’s a curated recap of our feed from the past few weeks.

  • With gay marriage legal in New York, many couples are finally tying the knot. This NYT slideshow of gay weddings made us very happy.

Just friends.

  • While gay activists continue to push for nationwide marriage equality, some cheeky folks started a campaign to let Sesame Street‘s Bert and Ernie get married. In response to the controversy, Sesame Street issued a statement asserting that Bert and Ernie are just friends, and furthermore, simply puppets! We say, leave the Muppets alone. But we’d love to see a campaign to get C-3PO to make an honest droid out of R2-D2.
  • Speaking of Star Wars, if you’ve got the hots for Luke Skywalker, here’s a must read on The do’s & dont’s of dating Mark Hamill.
  • What if male superheroes in comic books were posed like Wonder Woman? The result would probably look something like this.  Sexy!
  • Another sexy superhero: DallasVoice.com unmasked Zimmer Barnes, a gay crimefighter whose New York Initiative fights homophobia in the Big Apple.

  • Want to tighten your abs and strengthen your quads? Nah, us neither. But we could watch this 80s workout video all day.
  • Vice asked: Is anyone out there missing a bag of sex toys? 

  • We don’t want to kill your Anal August buzz, but Queerty had this reminder that sodomy is still illegal in 18 states.
  • “Right now, in one of the largest cities in the country, a six-foot-wide pair of white panties dominates one of the city’s most visible public spaces.” So begins this pithy piece of art criticism about a ginormous statue of Marilyn Monroe recently, um, erected in Chicago’s Pioneer Court.

S-T-R-E-T-C-H

  • Postmodern Barney found these awesome vintage men’s underwear ads.
  • The Seattle Weekly profiled a blind man who was prosecuted for illegally downloading porn.
  • Vice published Richard Kern’s unusual photos of naked young women and their prescription meds.
  • Gizmodo reported on the Viberect,  a new FDA-approved male vibrator, which resembles a set of salad tongs. Tossing a salad will never be the same again.
  • An anonymous writer in New York  recounted a week of hot sex with her boyfriend. Their sexual marathon included a trip to the New York branch of The Pleasure Chest, which she called “a candy store of fucking.”

  • This woman helpfully defined 30 paraphilias in 5 minutes. Collect ‘em all.
  • Scientists reported on new brain scan data which maps womens’ orgasmic response, and found to no one’s surprise, that nipples are an erogenous zone.
  • Researchers in the Netherlands claimed that our romantic partners are not as hot as we think. They theorized that such “positive illusions” help keep relationships stable.
  • A survey from the University of Rhode Island said that four out of five teenagers are sexting. In our day, we had to write dirty messages on Post-It notes.
  • Another study of American teens found that boys who masturbate are more likely to practice safe sex. Wait, there are boys who don’t masturbate?
  • A study in the journal Archives of Sexual Behavior claimed that men with erectile dysfunction are more likely to cheat on their partners.
  • A reader at Psychology Today asked “Who Invented the Blowjob?” The answer: Bonobos or barnacles, probably. (h/t Violet Blue)

Balls in your court.

  • The New York Observer noted a recent uptick in testicle-related litigation in American courtrooms.

Trick or treat? Hips or lips?

  • A reader at Dangerous Minds dug up this unlikely Al Pacino leatherdaddy costume from the notorious 1980 thriller Cruising.
  • John Stamos taught us how to cuddle.

  • Finally, Channel 6 Action News reported on a local man with too many cats.

L’Intimate. A stashcan for your vibrator!

1

by thepleasurechest

A few months ago, in our Turn On or Buzz Off poll, we asked if you’d buy L’Intimate, a sticky solution to a sticky problem– hiding your sex toys from prying eyes. You couldn’t hide your enthusiasm, so now we’re carrying L’Intimate. I took it home for a spin. Here’s the dirt.

I have to admit that the concept of a lint roller disguising a vibrator was not initially appealing to me. Partially, this is because I’m an exhibitionist. Come to my house, and you’re likely to see the coffee table and nightstands littered with masturbation sleeves, prostate stimulators and bottles of lube. I also keep the latest issues of Harper’s and The Economist lying around just to class up the joint.

My other concern is a sanitary one. I associate lint rollers with dirt, grime, and (most of all) pet hair. My cat is a furball factory, and I generally like to keep his shedding away from my sticky sex toys.

“I would never suspect that there was a vibrator in here.”

All that being said, L’Intimate is kind of a neat product. The lint roller itself works well. My girlfriend tested it on her coat, after a long weekend trip. It collected all of the lint with a few rolls. I asked her if she could hear or feel the hidden vibrator rattling around inside the secret compartment, and she said “I would never suspect that there was a vibrator in here.” So, if you’re a private person, or (more likely) want the thrill of watching your guests using your vibrator’s carrying case to clean their coats, L’Intimate will do the trick.

The included vibrator from Doc Johnson might not, however. We tried it out, and it’s a standard plastic slimline vibe. On a scale of 1-5 (5 being the Hitachi Magic Wand), my girlfriend rated the vibe a 1.5. Since the Hitachi still hasn’t fried her circuit board, she said this might be enough to get her off. But if you’re the kind of person who likes stronger vibration, the toy that comes with L’Intimate might not satisfy. Luckily, the compartment will accommodate most slimline vibes, so if you find one that works for you, L’Intimate could make a handy hiding place.

Even if you don’t use if for sex toys, you’ve got a functional lint roller for hiding contraband. Admit it: cops and parents can spot your phony Coca-Cola stashcan from a mile away. L’Intimate will roll way under the radar of nosy narcs.

We Dare. Turn On or Buzz Off?

0

by thepleasurechest

In our last poll, we asked readers to sound off on the Pangao Breast Enhancer. The infamous vibrating bra got very little support. Most of you hated this gadget, and couldn’t wait to get it off of your chests! Only a pair of voters were hooked. So long, Pangao Breast Enhancer, and thanks for the… (No, we can’t even go there. Some puns are unmentionable.)

This week’s contestant on Turn On or Buzz Off is for the swingers among you.  Wanna put the “game” back in non-monogamy? Sick of the same old key parties? Check out We Dare, an adults only game for the Nintendo Wii and PS3.

Here’s the come-on:

“We Dare is a sexy, quirky party game that offers a large variety of hilarious, innovative and physical, sometimes kinky, challenges. The more friends you invite to the party, the saucier the game!”

“Use the Wii-mote and PS3 Move controller in unbelievable ways, as you’ve never imagined before…wave it around to the beat of your favourite tunes, old and new…put it in your pocket and act-out flirtatious actions…balance it to navigate precarious challenges…sometimes co-operative hugging helps, and it certainly doesn’t hurt. Enjoy the unique gameplay designed for the use of these motion controllers exclusively for We Dare.”

Ah yes, “cooperative hugging”– the first step to a successful orgy. Whatever happened to a couple bottles of wine and a game of strip poker?

Judging from its now infamous commercial, We Dare is aiming for a demographic that doesn’t already hang out at swing clubs or poly munches. It’s apparently being marketed to straight, vanilla couples as a fun way to ease in to partner swapping, with some light spanking, sofa snuggling, trivia and other games. In this sense, it reminds us a lot of the old school “icebreaker” board games like 7 Deadly Sins or Sexy Slang.

Even though the ad looks a bit cheesy (OK, like a big hunk of cheddar with a slice of Velveeta on top), the truth is we can imagine playing We Dare with the right group of friends. But what about you? Whether you’re a novice at non-monogamy or a seasoned swinger, we want to know what you think. Would you swap Pictionary (and your partner) for a night with We Dare?

Editor’s note: We realize that we’re playing fast and loose with some different terms here. For an excellent primer on the difference between polyamory and swinging, we recommend this video by Ms. Nina Hartley.

L’Intimate. Turn On or Buzz Off?

2

by thepleasurechest

Voter turnout was very low in last week’s poll on the Obama Condom. With 100% of precincts reporting, we can now confirm that the Obama Condom will not be taking an oath of orifice.

Even though our fragile democracy has vetoed the Presidential prophylactic, we note that the British monarchy has its own version. Check out “Crown Jewels” brand condoms created to honor the upcoming nuptials of Prince Williams. Our suggested slogan: “For when you want to get royally fucked!”

This week’s contestant on Turn On or Buzz Off is classier than our usual fare. It’s a product designed for those discrete souls who want to keep their sex toys hidden from prying eyes. Say bonjour to L’Intimate, (a play on the words “lint” and “intimate”), a functional lint roller, with a secret compartment in the handle for storing a vibrator. It’s basically a stashcan for your vibe!

Or, in the words of its manufacturer, Miss Chivus:

L’Intimate is a dual-functioning product that elevates the level of class and discretion for women looking to maintain pleasure in their personal lives. Our goal is to provide a functional compromise between natural sexuality and sophistication.

There’s even a helpful diagram showing you how to open the secret compartment and remove your vibrator (which is included). Miss Chivus promises that L’Intimate is “the first in a soon to be revolutionary line of ‘disguised’ adult products.” There’s definitely a demand for covert sex toys. There are already sex toys disguised as lipstick, a sponge, a USB thumb drive and even a bicycle grip.

For those with nosy houseguests (the kind who open drawers and look under beds), L’Intimate might be a dream come true. As a fringe benefit, you might get a special thrill when an unsuspecting visitor runs the roller along their coat or evening gown. Or, on the other hand, will you have neurotic visions of the guest unlocking the secret compartment and discovering your naughty secret?

We have irrational fears of our own. Around our house, the lint roller is the primary weapon in the war against cat hair– the natural enemy of sticky sex toys. Do we really want our vibrator riding shotgun inside a lint magnet?

Let us know what you think. L’Intimate. Turn On or Buzz Off?
